The mowers run great I had a few til they finally crapped out and that trimmer should last you a while but that blower is something you will need to work on my work has that blower and I think it would be faster cleaning sidewalk with a broom. I like the Ford you had.

yeah the ford was a good truck had a 302 v8 and a 4 speed with granny gear i did the paint job, i rolled rustoleum on they call it a 50 dollar paint job but i should have wet sanded it, i didnt want to keep i because i had to patch the frame buy the rear bumper and and small holes by the air shocks but it was a runner

Nice stuff, I remember that old Ford from Plowsite I'm pretty sure. That mower will hopefully treat you well, little cleanup and elbow grease will go a long ways.
